Cons: can be hard to find
Overall I enjoy trying out products from the company called Method. Typically though I can only find them in Target stores, and we have no targets in our town. Usually when we do stop into a Target store while out of the area shopping I always walk down the aisles with the Method products just to see what they have that's new or might catch me eye. What caught my eye the last time was Method Almond Flower Creamy Hand Wash.
I seem to be on a kick lately where I love anything Almond scented. Almond Flower sounded okay, and I screwed off the lid and sniffed it. It smelled pretty and not too overly foody. It wasn't really floral either - over all it just smelled really nice.
I also really loved the look of the packaging. It was a 10 ounce plastic cube - a design I hadn't seen often in a hand soap and I felt attractive. My husband agreed. Each side was imprinted with a series of 9 raised squares, sort of a pattern of 3 by 3 by 3. The texture of the bottle was nice as well. The price for the cube is $5, and though there should be refills for this product, I didn't see any bigger sizes to refill with nearby and I haven't easily found any on-line.
From the company:
"there's no such thing as a non-toxic moisturizer that keeps your hands clean, so instead, we decided to create a non-toxic cleaner that keeps your hands moisturized. infused with vitamins a & e, this 98% natural, gorgeous-smelling stuff keeps your skin soft and your dukes dirt-free."
(Method actually makes this creamy hand soap in a few scents, but after sniff testing them all in the store, we liked the Almond Flower best)
We realized that this product was more natural, and therefore it did not contain any of the antibacterial ingredients that are controversial for some. Generally I like to have antibacterial soaps if I can - mainly because I have children in the house and I worry about germs. I wasn't concerned though that this hand soap didn't have this though, and the Method Almond Flower Creamy Hand Wash sat by our kitchen sink and was only used by my husband and I.
Beyond the scent, this soap is really creamy, as the name implies. It does lather well though, which I was happy to see. I was a little worried this would be more like a thin lotion, or a product that would leave residue or a film on the skin. It never did - it always rinsed away clean.
What I especially loved about this soap was just how moisturizing it was. We used this in some of the coldest, driest months at our house. The soap really made a huge difference in the softness or our skin - and we didn't notice the huge issue with dry, chapped or cracked hands like we did every year.
The only con I have to the soap is its availability. I don't understand why Method can be so hard to find, and I rarely order products like this on-line. If I could have stocked up on this creamy hand soap or found the refill for it easily we would have totally kept using it. As it turned out, when it was empty we liked the packaging so much that we refilled it with another liquid hand soap we have.
Overall Method Almond Flower Creamy Hand Wash is a really, really nice hand soap.
